Mindful eating is not a diet, or about giving up anything at all. It’s about experiencing food more intensely — especially the pleasure of it. You can eat a cheeseburger mindfully, if you wish. You might enjoy it a lot more. Or you might decide, halfway through, that your body has had enough. Or that it really needs some salad.
The NYTimes writes up mindful eating, and quotes one of the speakers whom I heard at SPSP two weeks ago. I know this entire practice sounds so hippie, but I actually think it's v. interesting.
